With summer just beginning and 7th grade just ahead of him, Scrub is headed to his Grandma and a summer job at her Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast. His chances to practice basketball and make the all-star team are looking dim. He may just give up hoops and join the Sci-Fi Fantasy Club with all the weirdos. You can probably guess this is going to be a summer of surprises. Scrub won't be mowing lawns and running errands. No, his summer job will be to GRADE the intergalactic visitors who arrive at the Inn and that means disguising these aliens so they can blend into the Seattle area and enjoy their vacation on this primitive planet Earth.

Now, Scrub also has a summer "challenge" with his best friend, Tyler, to see who will be the first to kiss a girl- a Non-Relative Girl. Enter Amy, the sheriff's daughter, who thinks something unusual might be happening in this quirky Inn. Enter alien after alien with their hunger for aluminum foil and bleach and their exotic appendages, coloring and extra eyes. This is a hilarious romp with a likable main character who is leading us all on a mission
to see the good in every one of the "creatures" in our own wacky world. Good read for kids who like humor and wandering outside the box of normal and a little first kiss to boot.
